The Paperless Princess: Receipt You Later


Disclosure: I’m proud to be working with CVS Pharmacy on the CVS Says Receipt You Later Campaign. All opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified by or with the appropriate manufacturers. 

One of my goals for 2017 is to simplify my life by acquiring less “stuff.”

Less toys around the house that my kids have outgrown and never play with.

Less cosmetics and old jewelry that sits abandoned in various places around our home.

Shoot. Even the “junk drawer” in my kitchen has various sub-categories of junk!

Less “stuff” inside my purse, which is a bottomless pit of pens, receipts, notes, and fuchsia lipstick.

For 2017, I’ve declared myself the Paperless Princess.

One of my go-to stores, CVS Pharmacy, in order to promote efficiency and eliminate clutter, recently started offering digital receipts as a new option for the millions of active members of its ExtraCare Rewards Program.

I shop at CVS Pharmacy several times a week because it’s on my way home from work and perfect for when I need to grab simple (yet important) things like plastic baggies for the kids’ lunches, cotton balls, and super glue.

Really. I purchased these three things from CVS the other day.

With the digital receipt program, customers now have the opportunity to opt out of receiving paper receipts for in-store purchases when completing their transactions in the front of the store. Once the one-time sign up process is completed, customers will receive their receipts digitally, along with their personalized coupons and rewards, each time they shop at CVS Pharmacy.

Instead of the cashier handing me a long receipt after my purchase that ultimately gets “lost in the shuffle” and tossed in the trash, I now receive digital receipts illustrating what I purchased.

Returns are easy, peasy. No more hunting down the paper receipt.

Signing up was lightning fast. As in, fifteen seconds.

I simply provided my email address to the cashier at check out and she said “alrighty, you should have your digital receipt in a few minutes.”

It was in my inbox by the time I got to the car.

Going digital results in increased efficiency, convenience, and personalization.

Less clutter equals one happy mama!

      Love this post! Paper receipts are the worst. I always lose them. Happy Friday!

      That is such a great option, I wish more stores would do that!
